Shared Education Weeks 8 & 9

12th Apr 2019

Our Shared Education partnership with Coagh PS continues to grow with great learning through the WAU Themes of ‘Water’ and ‘Fairtrade’ along with developing the pupils’ ICT skills through Coding using Sphero Sprk+ 

Our P5 pupils continue to develop their understanding of WATER especially the importance of having clean water and experiencing the challenges of how some countries don’t have instant access to clean water, with dirty water the only option with serious consequences and also how they have to walk long distances to collect clean water. 

Our P6/P7 pupils continue to develop their knowledge and understanding of Fairtrade comparing various Fairtrade and Non-Fairtrade products along with the advantages and disadvantages of Fairtrade. 

With our ever changing digital world the pupils show great teamwork for the coding sessions through the use of Sphero Sprk+ and activity mats by programming the Sphero to make various journeys around the mats and by creating their own journeys using various materials and resources. 

Keep up the great work everyone.
